Tomorrow is May. Another month gone. With that I'm reminded of my goals for 2013. Goals I made waaay back at the beginning of the year, when, perhaps, I was feeling overly ambitious. To recap: I challenged myself to read 24 books this year. So far I've made it through eight (plus a few kid books, which I don't really count). Best books of the year thus far? Girlchild and The Fault in Our Stars. Holy. In addition, I made a goal to exercise at least 3 times a week. I've made a very noble effort and managed to do this more than half the time. Including one foray into a hotel fitness room when I was on vacation. Yeah, it's not that impressive, but you know. And finally, I made a challenge to write 52 thank you cards this year. You remember real mail, with real postage stamps? For me, it's been a fun way to combine several of my passions: people, writing, pretty paper, and (hopefully) developing an increased measure of gratitude in my day-to-day life. In addition, I challenged myself to learn something new. Which I did and I hope to write about soon. As to our post-it board? Well, we've got 10 sticky notes left. (Fortunately we'll knock out three in May.) So here I go, sailing into the next third of the year.
